From Touchwood To Nazar Ka Teeka, Bollywood Celebs Believe In Some Strange Superstitions

As Indians, superstitions have been a part and parcel of our lives. Be it a black cat crossing the road or just some good old nazar ka teeka, even the most educated of us have that one-off superstitious belief. Especially when it comes to cricket! We all know that one person who follows that whacky superstition to make their favourite team to win! 

And Bollywood celebs are no different. Just like all of us, they too have some or the other bizarre unfounded beliefs. We all know about Salman Khan's sapphire bracelet and SRK's obsession with 555 and let's not forget Bipasha Basu's nimbu mirchi craze. But here are some superstitions from B-town that you probably didn't know of!

Bollywood's power couple also have their own quirky superstitions and we find it difficult to believe!
